While some reporters were covering the Democratic and Republican Conventions earlier this month, quite a few of them were fooling around with a competition put on by 2K Play and Comedy Central's Indecision Game. A "clandestine" political trivia tournament was held between 20 of the nation's greatest political pundits and reporters to see who was the most politically savvy in a March Madness-style bracket.
By the end, two talking heads rose to the top: Fox News Anchor Greta Van Susteren and Editor-in-Chief of The Hotline, Reid Wilson. The two pundits beat out combatants from such organizations as the Washington Post, NBC News, Fox News, Salon, Politico and Roll Call among others.
"This game is more than just trivia, it requires masterful political calculations and the competition is cutthroat," said Mary Phillips-Sandy, Editorial Director for COMEDY CENTRAL's Indecision. "The shrewd tactics these reporters took – from collecting greenbacks to dropping smear campaigns and whipping up voters, all while quickly and correctly answering rapid-fire questions – makes the 2012 Presidential Race look like child's play."
The dramatic end of this tournament will come when the two finalists play to claim the title of "The Greatest Political Mind of Our Time" by facing off in a monumental match of Comedy Central's Indecision Game. The winner will formally be announced by 2K Play and COMEDY CENTRAL with "great pageantry and celebration." When that will happen we do not know…
Comedy Central's Indecision Game app is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices at Apple's App Store, the Amazon App Store and Google Play.
